During a recent tweet spree, Kanye West called Lil Baby his favorite rapper but revealed that the Atlanta superstar wouldn’t work with him. Now Baby, whose My Turn album has been the longest-charting project of 2020 so far, responded by claiming nobody on his team brought the possibility of working with Kanye to his attention.

Kanye’s reported outreach to Lil Baby was just one of many recently deleted tweets touching on a wide-ranging number of topics, from calling out Shia LaBeouf for cancelling an appearance in Kanye’s YEEZY Gap partnership to accusing his wife Kim Kardashian and mother-in-law Kris Jenner of attempting to commit him to the hospital. Due to the erratic nature of Kanye’s past couple of weeks including a presidential rally in South Carolina, Kim released a public statement on Kanye West’s mental health, asking the media and public for compassion and empathy while her family works through his reported manic episode.

It’s unclear if West still plans to work with Lil Baby in the future. Kanye has since revealed the tracklist for his upcoming project DONDA and detailed that it would release this Friday, July 24. Stay tuned for more updates.

Elsewhere in the music world, The Weeknd tapped Black-owned anime studio D’Art Shtajio for his new “Snowchild” music video.
